Work Place Water Damage is Restored by SERVPRO

When business owners think of water damage potentially happening to their property, they often picture a massive storm wiping out power lines, flooding offices, and shutting down businesses for days at a time. It is true that commercial water damage is often the result of floods and water that stems from weather events and storms. However, storms and severe weather aren't the only causes of floods and water damage.

Here are some of the typical causes of water damage to commercial building:
 
1. Malfunctioning sprinkler systems
Older office and retail buildings still have sprinkler systems that work in conjunction with fire protection systems. While such sprinklers can come in handy during a fire emergency, they can also cause commercial flood damage if they are faulty or in need of replacement. This could easily damage inventory and business assets.

2. Damaged appliances and equipment
Commercial flood damage is more common in restaurants and catering facilities, as well as any business that has appliances and equipment that make use of water. If the appliance fails and sends water across your building, especially during late hours when no one is around, you may come back to work and face a water emergency.
 
3. Broken pipes and plumbing
If the plumbing system in your workplace fails water damage could be the result. This can happen in different ways, but frozen and broken pipes are the most common. If there is a pipe line break, you could walk into your building to find wet floors and walls or even standing water in the room.
 
4. Backed up sewer lines

This is another cause of commercial water damage that often catches business owners by surprise. If the sewer line to your building backs up, realize the potential dangers of contaminated water which can cause health effects, ruin products and office furnishings.

3 Emergency Power Systems to Consider In Case of an Emergency

10/15/2019 (Permalink)

Generator for backup emergency energy Generators can be a life and workplace saving device. Should you consider getting a generator?

Storms and other unforeseen factors can cause a power outage which would cause you to have to close down your Fayetteville business, leaving you in an emergency situation. Even without the lights, it will be dangerous to navigate around the building. SERVPRO will need power to mitigate if you have water damage. It is so important to have a backup power source when you need it. Depending on your company’s specific needs and budget, here are a few options for emergency power systems. Consider these so you can be prepared in the case of an emergency.

Standby Generator

The standby generator is one of the more popular options. These are permanent systems, usually located outside the building. Depending on how it is powered: gasoline, diesel, natural gas or liquid propane, these generators are VERY effective and provide a lot of power when in use. This option does require regular maintenance by a professional. This is typically the best option for commercial properties.

Portable Generator

If you want a more budget friendly option, or wouldn’t need to get power to more than a few places, a portable generator may be a better option for you. A portable generator can be moved to a safe, outdoor area and help support the power to your building. If you live in a place where storms are less common, this maybe your best option.

Solar Backup Generator

This option works similarly to a traditional gas powered generator, however, it is reliant upon solar energy. While this is a more “green” option and you don’t have to worry about purchasing gas, but it also can’t power as much as a standby generator.

Which is Best?

The right option for you will depend on your commercial property and specific needs at that location in the case of power loss. Consider all your options to stay prepared for the unexpected events that could happen!

An additional option for your emergency preparedness: An Emergency Ready Profile (ERP)

An ERP lays out all of the utility companies that you use, their contact information as well as information regarding shut-off locations for gas, water and electricity. You can detail an ERP as much as you’d like and add contacts for all employees that may need to be contacted in the event of an emergency. Contact your local SERVPRO if you are interested in getting a FREE and CUSTOMIZED ERP today!

SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale should be your first choice for any residential or commercial restoration needs. Our team of professionals is trained to assess the damage and potential threats, extract and contain the affected area, dry, and restore your property to preloss condition.

How Pack-Outs are a Part of Water Damage Restoration in Fayetteville

3/27/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO's pack-out services allow you to move your furnishings and other items to our storage facility.

Professional Pack-Out is the Cornerstone to Fayetteville Commercial Water Removal Success

Reduce the chaos of commercial water damage mitigation in Fayetteville by considering a pack-out of furnishings, electronics and other equipment, and documents. Choosing to clear the flooded areas of your commercial property makes planning for and implementation of water extraction strategies more efficient. The contents removed also receives the treatments needed to return to function and appearance. 

Heavy spring rains and overflow from higher elevations contribute to the need for professional water removal in your Fayetteville business. Packing up and moving out contents is often a smart initial step. When commercial spaces are free of inventory, stored items, and other portable items the removal of excess water becomes more straightforward. Without the added humidity-load of saturated contents, it is easier and quicker to accomplish structural drying. 

SERVPRO uses a structured Contents Claim Inventory Service (CCIS) protocol to ensure the items we pack out are inventoried thoroughly and tracked throughout the process. Lists of packed contents for each space, digital photographs of articles removed, and the option of barcoding for speed and accuracy provide safeguards for commercial clients. 

Insurance claims for water damage need documentation for certain payment. The SERVPRO CCIS establishes the condition of each item packed out, the planned cleaning and drying strategies we believe appropriate, and the results of the treatments completed at our climate-controlled production facility. If an article is not restorable, the need for a replacement is proven.

SERVPRO production facility technicians have innovative equipment and specialized training to bring even extensively damaged items back to preloss condition. The resources available to our employees include vacuum freeze-drying systems for documents, books, and photographs. Thermal chambers for electronics and small, easy to control drying spaces for furnishings pull moisture out of dozens of essential artifacts critical to the operation of your business. Industrial washers and dryers and access to dry cleaning services or specialized equipment that cleans and dries soft items set our company apart from traditional cleaning businesses. 

At your commercial building, our technicians use the freedom granted by cleared spaces to pump out and extract standing water fast. SERVPRO crews then use structural drying techniques taught at IICRC training to make it “Like it never even happened” at your business property before welcoming back the restored packed out items. The final step is business as usual.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale stands ready to help with every aspect of commercial water removal. Call for a quick evaluation at (479) 419-5544.

Extraction is important to begin right away when our SERVPRO team arrives at your damaged thrift shop.

SERVPRO's Top Ways To Succeed In Restoring Your Commercial Property In Johnson After A Water Damage Incident

10/1/2018 (Permalink)

When a water supply pipe leaks or a tenant allows water to overflow into a bathroom or kitchen in your building, water damage happens quickly.

Remediating Water Damage In Johnson Apartments And Condominiums

During seasons of heavy rain, it can be easy to forget that rental properties in Johnson are also at risk of water damage year-round from non-weather related issues. It is more common to deal with the deterioration of an apartment building's materials from plumbing leaks or appliance and equipment malfunctions than storm-related events. Regardless of the source, commercial water damage is a crisis, and we can help.

When a water supply pipe leaks, an appliance breaks down, or a tenant allows water to overflow into a bathroom or kitchen in your Johnson apartment building, water damage happens quickly. Although the water from a supply line starts out as clean, removal and cleanup must occur fast to avoid the progressive damage water can do to the structure and contents of a commercial space. We are Faster To Any-Sized Disaster, arriving as soon as possible with trained technicians and powerful water removal equipment.

Turning off the water to the property is the first task with a water damage scenario. Once we make sure to secure the water source,  SERVPRO’s emergency crew leader assesses the damage done to your business. We outline a water pumping and extraction plan, using truck-mounted and powered tools if the power is off in your building for safety reasons.

We use state of the art moisture monitoring and thermal imaging equipment to provide drying baselines and to locate water hidden in cavities on your property. Water flows down walls and along plumbing and electrical lines inside walls. Often water draining from one unit can damage others even more severely. SERVPRO Monitoring Technicians supervise the water removal and structural drying of your commercial building, making sure moisture levels return to normal in all spaces affected.

Drying done correctly involves keeping detailed drying logs and monitoring moisture readings continuously. SERVPRO takes pride in providing documentation that supports liability claims, and we work with your insurance company to limit your out of pocket liability during the restoration process. The records kept can be of great help in covering costs if any tenants must be relocated temporarily during the process.

Commercial Water Removal in Johnson Hotels and Motels

12/4/2017 (Permalink)

SERVPRO technicians use large pumps to remove standing water from rooms, hallways, and common areas.

SERVPRO Quickly Removes Standing Water in Hotels

Small hotels and motels are important for Johnson. They provide a perfect stopover point for anyone coming off 71, traveling up I-49, or visiting for a Razorbacks game. Since they often operate on a slim margin, getting their doors reopened quickly after a flood is vital.

Commercial water removal in a Johnson hotel or motel usually involves getting standing water out and then lifting moisture from floors and carpets. SERVPRO has decades of experience with both of these tasks and does our best to keep owners satisfied.

Our IICRC-certified technicians start with pumps. We use them to remove water over two inches deep in rooms, hallways, and common areas. Clearing each room is a matter of minutes, and larger rooms like a lobby or a conference room often take no more than half an hour. We can remove water from even a large motel in less than a day.

Once we remove the water, or if it is less than two inches deep, SERVPRO brings in water extraction wands. These devices look like a commercial grade water vacuum but are much more versatile. We can adjust the speed and airflow to ensure we remove water and moisture without damaging carpets or floor surfaces.

Drawing out water at this point takes longer since we have to examine completed areas by touch. An average sized room takes a half to a full hour. We can finish many rooms for occupancy in a single day. If the power has been interrupted, we can bring in a generator to provide uninterrupted electrical support until we complete every water removal task.

In some cases, the flooding leaves the air very humid and uncomfortable for guests. When this happens, our technicians set up a series of air movers and exhaust fans to lower the humidity levels. The air movers generate warm, dry air to replace the cooler, damp air drawn out by the fans.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale understands how important it is for a business to keep its doors open every possible day and hour. If you are dealing with a flooding problem, call our office today at (479) 419-5544 to schedule a work crew. We are here to help.

Sports Venue Suffers Flood Damage In Springdale

10/4/2017 (Permalink)

We have the experience needed to remove water and dry out batting cages, locker rooms, and snack bars restoring the entire sports campus to new.

Commercial Storm Damage Restoration

Seasonal storms pack a powerful punch, causing significant flood damage in Northwest Arkansas. Some businesses are at particular risk of serious harm to structure and fixtures, including those featuring expanses of hardwood flooring that are both handsome and chosen for a commercial purpose. Restoration of the hardwood after flooding is crucial for the business to continue.

Basketball and volleyball players and teams demand the smoothness and spring only a maple or other hardwood floor offers. When heavy rains and winds cause flood damage to your Springdale sports center, you are in danger of permanent closure if speedy remediation and restoration, especially of the flooring, does not occur. We have the experience and training needed to remove water and dry out multiple gyms, batting cages, locker rooms, snack bars, and meeting areas, returning the entire sports campus to its preloss condition.

Many inches of water flowed and collected on the courts and practice areas of the sports complex as saturated soil, and wind-ravaged roofs exacerbated the flooding. Fast action is required, and SERVPRO crews arrive with high-efficiency submersible pumps and water extractors, vehicle-mounted to begin the flood abatement whether or not the power failed during the storm.

Once the majority of the water is removed, our workers position powerful air movers and dehumidifiers to reduce the moisture content of all structural elements and fixtures. SERVPRO technicians receive advanced training in drying hardwood floors using a range of techniques. Drying mats pull water from the polished playing layer and through to the subfloor, as wet materials underlying the court or gym floor continuously sent moisture wicking into the hardwood.

Throughout the process our team members measure moisture levels in all affected areas and materials, first to establish drying goals, and second to demonstrate that adequate drying is achieved. Loosening and raising some areas of the hardwood planks allows air to circulate, accelerating the drying. We also may drill holes in strategic places to allow water vapor to escape, and consider removing some of the protective finish for the same reason. SERVPRO workers persist until the right combinations of methods result in a return to normal moisture levels, usually below 12 percent for wood floors, so that any sanding and refinishing completes the job.

SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale has the balance of skilled workers and modern equipment to deliver a successful flood damage abatement in a large recreational facility. Call (479) 419-5544 as soon as possible to get the restoration rolling.

Mold Damage in Fayetteville Storage Facilities

5/19/2017 (Permalink)

Many people turn to using a storage unit at one or several times in their lives. Make sure that a mold infestation in your business does not spread.

Quick Action is Key to Preventing a Mold Infestation From Growing


In a college town, students take advantage of self-storage facilities to secure belongings between semesters or when they study abroad. This plan works well for the traveling scholars and is a great business opportunity for the owner of the storage company until mildew or mold infiltrates one or more units. SERVPRO has the experience to respond when microbial growth gets out of control and threatens your business.
 
Problems arise when water leaks inside or moisture otherwise raises the humidity level high enough to support commercial mold damage in your Fayetteville self-storage business. Your tenants often put their stored property out of their mind and rarely visit to inspect the areas rented. Mold needs no light to grow, so hidden pockets proliferate. Your offer to protect customers’ belongings is at risk if microbes grow unabated. When you discover mold in the storage common areas or rented rooms, your first step must include lining up a reliable remediation company.
 
SERVPRO trains its staff to follow proper EPA protocols when molds are an issue. When an inspection of your facility reveals mold contamination, quick but sure action is the only answer. Qualified restoration staff contain and remove mold, and then sanitize the area where mold grew. The interconnected storage units pose a challenge if a common HVAC system heats, cools, and clears the air. Well trained remediation staff choose to use air scrubbers with negative air pressure to keep the mold outbreak confined to just the one unit.
 
Mold remediation is incomplete if the source of water is ignored. Mold spores are always present, inside and out. They mature into mold colonies when moisture feeds them. The mold experts from SERVPRO took advanced classes to help find the water causing the problem. Flat roofs with clogged drains, cracked cinder block walls, high humidity, and flooding are just some of the things leading to mold growth. This mold remediation expert has dozens of practical suggestions to prevent future microbial growth based upon finding and securing leaks and other water incursions.
 
Sometimes unit tenants bring the wetness and mold risk into the storage area. SERVPRO works with you, offering tips to inspect the contents and advise customers to limit the mold growth you invite when you rent to careless lessees.
 
SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale guides your storage business through the stress of mold remediation. Call (479) 419-5544 to set up a consultation right away.

Fayetteville Commercial Water Removal

Call SERVPRO to Keep Your Fayetteville Business High and Dry

Rely on SERVPRO to Extract Water and Mitigate Damages to Your Business

Damage to your business doesn't require hundreds of gallons of water rushing in all at once. Many problems can result from just an inch or two that soaks into carpets, walls and furniture. Even this small amount of water can cost a huge amount loss regarding cleaning and replacing property.

Handling commercial water damage in Fayetteville is more time consuming and difficult than just removing water from a private home. Commercial buildings are much larger and use a wider number of different building materials. Fortunately, SERVPRO has the training, equipment and experience to handle these structures as well.

Take a showroom floor in a furniture store for example. Hundreds of square feet of floor space that needs to be pumped out if there is standing water. This task would take an hour or two in most homes, but it's an all day job in this situation.

When the majority of the water has been removed, technicians need to draw out excess moisture from the surrounding air. In a home, this task can be accomplished with a few exhaust fans. For a large structure, commercial air movers have to be put in place throughout the area to maintain a steady airflow with fans set up to blow the moist air out of the facility. In large commercial loss situations, we can truck in desiccant and refrigerated dehumidifiers. If the air is exceptionally humid, then they will also deploy large dehumidifiers capable of drawing out over 30 gallons of water daily to assist.

As this happens, other technicians examine the carpets and other flooring for remaining water. In a home, a single wet vacuum can draw out the water from most carpets and the pad underneath in an afternoon if they haven't been overly saturated. Large, commercial, water extractors are needed for rooms with extensive square feet. This process can take all day and require several SERVPRO team members working in tandem to complete the job.

The size of most commercial structures means that a rapid response is needed even more than with a private home. This is why SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale maintains a 24-hour response team trained to help you get your doors opened and taking care of your customers as fast as we can. To get everything started, call us at (479) 419-5544.
